Me accidentally thinking this waterfall is a DJ when in fact it is not kids this is very dangerous and slippery and not the best idea I’ve ever had it’s a mixture of stupidity and me acting like a child 24/7 and also thinking I can dance on slippery rocks because I lived in waterfalls when I lived in Maui but really it’s just dumb luck that I didn’t slip please don’t try this at home I’m sorry I’m such a bad example for the youths dad 🦄💃🏻✨ MY FAV PART OF MY SRI LANKA TRIP there is no other feeling on earth like standing under the power of a waterfall this huge!! I love it!! The water wasn’t even cold it was fucking dope I loved itttt I cried shortly after this like a loser cuz it was so beautiful lol I LOVE YOU SRI LANKA #srilanka #waterfall #lifeisbeautiful #lookhowdangerousthisis #butitsfun #dancing #lovelife #travel #squatspo #waterfalls #waterfallsofinstagram

The Titan 🐘 & the Egret (just under the left tusk 🐦 Big or small, each animal has a big role to play in our eco system. Humans are part of it too, although we act like we own the world. A very special moment I was lucky enough to capture few months ago. This is Tusker Dappula. These little moments add up to "Wonder of Asia" . . . #wildlifephotography #wildasia #canon_photos #natgeowild #natgeoyourshot #naturephotography #birds_of_ig #birds #elephants #elephantsantuary #mammalsofinstagram #animalshots #canon5dmarkiv #wildlifeonearth #wildlife #elephant🐘 #tusker #srilankadaily #egret #picoftheday #nature_perfection #bbcearth #ourplanet #wildsrilanka #naturelovers #wildelephant #dailyinspiration

Día 090: El día comenzó con algunos temas administrativos y siguió arriba de una scooter para recorrer algunos pueblos aledaños de Sigiriya. Empezando por Dambulla, el cual nos pareció con bastante actividad y movimiento urbano, topándonos con un mercado local donde vendían de todo. La Vic aprovechó de aperarse de algunas pilchas para sus visitas más “ceremoniales”, producto de la pérdida y desgaste de pilchas antiguas y por las costumbres locales que debemos respetar. Visítanos el “Golden Temple” junto al Dambulla Cave Temple. De ahí nos fuimos rumbo a Polonnauwa, a ver ruinas ancestrales de monasterios, templos y estupas. Sin lugar a dudas ver estas construcciones antiguas y frescos, nos hace imaginar épocas y sociedades; pero lo que no es imaginación es encontrarnos en plena ruta con animales “salvajes” en libertad …. es algo que a ambos nos asombra y nos gusta, disfruten del último video!!!! #dambulla #polonnaruwa

🐘CÓMO EVITAR LA CRUELDAD ANIMAL EN VIAJES: 1. Evitar cualquier tipo de atracción en la que se tenga que pagar para interactuar directamente con animales salvajes (no pagar por acariciar, bañarse, montar, tomar fotos o tocar animales salvajes). 2. Asegurarse de ver animales en parques nacionales, hábitats protegidos, refugios y safaris éticos que ayudan a generar ingresos para proteger a los animales salvajes y sus hogares. 3. Apoyar santuarios genuinos que de verdad son un refugio para animales rescatados que ya no podrían sobrevivir en la naturaleza. (Hay que investigar bien; solo porque se llaman a sí mismos un "santuario", no significa que lo sean. Siempre comunicarse con fuentes confiables si no estás seguro). . 🐫HOW TO AVOID ANIMAL CRUELTY WHEN TRAVELLING: 1. Avoid any kind of attraction where you pay to directly interact with wild animals (don’t pay to pet, bathe, ride, get photos with, or touch wild animals). 2. Make a point to see animals in national parks, protected habitats, refuges,  and ethical safaris that help generate income to protect wild animals and their homes. 3. Support genuine sanctuaries that provide refuge to rescued animals who can no longer survive in the wild. (Do your own research; just because they call themselves a “sanctuary,” it doesn’t mean they are. Always reach out to trusted sources if you’re unsure.) 🦍🐋🐬🦏🦛🐆🐅🐊🐫🐪🐂🦘🦜🐿🦌🐎 .

(English translation👇🏻). El 29 d’abril de 2019 Sri Lanka es va despertar amb 6 bombes quasi consecutives a diferents llocs del país: a 3 esglèsies i a 3 hotels, quasi totes a la capital, Colombo. Van haver-hi més de 300 morts i el que havia estat un país tranquil durant 10 anys després dels conflictes amb els tamils, va tornar a reviure aquelles èpoques tan complicades… Els habitabts de SL estan tocats i preocupats, el turisme ha caigut en picat i els llocs que fins fa 2 dies eren plens de turistes de gom a gom…molts estan, directament, tancats. Ells són optimistes i diuen que en un any remuntaran, però se’ls nota amoïnats…ara entenc les mirades complaents de l’avió al venir (érem poquíssims turistes) i les frases soprenents que ens deien “welcome to my country, thanks for coming”, pensava jo “què simpàtics!” i ho són (i molt) però sobretot agraïts als 4 turistes que hem decidit venir, tot i la situació actual..admeto la meva recança inicial i inclús haver-me plantejat anul.lar el viatge (viatjar amb els fills després del succeït jinya una mica, no ens enganyem…però em vaig deixar convèncer pel “això et pot passar a tot arreu, avui en dia”, i aquí estem…). Els habitabts d’aquí són la gent més hospitalària i maca que he vist mai. Ens sonriuen molt (però molt!), ens saluden amb la mà, sembla com si mai haguessin vist un turista…! A més a més, els hi flipen els nens, ens paren a tot arreu, els hi pregunten i diuen coses pel carrer, a les botigues, els hi acaricien la cara, el cap… mai havia viscut tan afecte cap als nens i cap a nosaltres…i he viatjat a uns quants països, però mai m’havia trobat això… I passar una setmana acompanyats pel Sunil ha estat meravellós també, és amor pur, aquest home..💕 I com a país és simplement ESPECTACULAR! Salvatge, verge, majestuós, exhuberant, selva pura, autèntic, original… només porto una setmana aquí i ja m’ha atrapat totalment… Així que el meu consell per qui s’ho estigui plantejant: veniu a Sri Lanka QUE FLIPAREU…! No us arrepentireu…! Superarà totes les vostres expectatives…! 😍😍 I com diu el meu àngel de la guarda d’aquest viatge: el millor de SL és la seva gent…! 🙌🏻❤️ . #srilanka #SL

⁠ It's always wonderful to hear our clients' feedback when they return from their Selective Asia holiday, but it's been particularly special to hear from clients who are currently in, or have just returned from Sri Lanka.⁠ ⁠ We'd like to thank SA traveller Nicolette who is currently in Sri Lanka and has kindly shared her experience with us. ⁠ ⁠ In her own words…⁠ "We are now at the sea, and wow what an amazing view. There are quite a few Sri Lankan families here as it’s a holiday tomorrow. Only a handful of English people.⁠ ⁠ Comfortingly the security is very high, with vehicles checked before allowed in to the hotel and check points everywhere. We loved the cultural triangle – every day has just been perfect. Niruth is wonderful, really enjoying his company and sense of humour. He is so caring & perceptive.

Koneswaram Temple, Trincomalee #amazingsrilanka #srilanka #trincomalee #lovesrilanka Trincomalee’s ancient history is more mystery and legend and sometimes highly debated. On the eastern promontory is the famous Swami rock on which stands the celebrated Koneswaram temple. It is believed that on this same holy spot had stood a very ancient great Pagoda or the the temple of 1,000 pillars, which was destroyed in the 17th century by the Portuguese. It is documented that Constantine de Sa demolished the glorious Koneswaram temple with its “thousand columns” in 1624. De Queyroz, the Portuguese historian not only describes the exact location of the temple but goes further by describing it as the ” Rome of the Orient more frequented by pilgrims than Rameshwaram or Jeganath in Orissa”. The Pallavas, the Pandyans and Cholas were closely associated with the building, repairs, extensions and endowments to the Koneswaram temple. An ancient phallus retrieved by an under water explorer is believed to have belonged to that ancient shrine. Some believe that King Panduvasdeva (5th Century BC) had founded the imposing temple on the rock of Trincomalee (now known as Swami rock). In ancient times Trincomalee was known as Gokanna. Among its many references in history King Dutugemunu is said to have built many viharas and monasteries at Gokuranna. King Mahasena ( 3rd Century AD), noted for his feats of tank building is said to have constructed many tanks in this region. The first stupa built on the Gokarangiri rock which has been identified as the present Fort Fredrick or Swami rock was named as Gokaranna Vihara. And a village nearby was called Gokannagama. One interesting legend regarding this area celebrates King Ravana who, when his mother was ailing, wanted to remove the temple of Koneswaram. As he was heaving the rock God Siva made him drop his sword. As a result of this a cleft was created on the rock, which is today called Ravana Vettu-meaning Ravana’s Cleft.

Stork billed kingfisher : Uncommon and the biggest kingfisher recorded in Sri Lanka. If you re lucky you can sometimes able to see them in ponds around Colombo. It is a very large kingfisher, measuring 35 cm (14 in) in length.[2] The adult has a green back, blue wings and tail, and olive-brown head. Its underparts and neck are buff. The very large bill and legs are bright red. The flight of the stork-billed kingfisher is laboured and flapping, but direct. Sexes are similar. There are 13 races or subspecies, differing mostly in plumage detail, but P. c. gigantea of the Sulu Archipelago in the Philippines has a white head, neck and underparts. The call of this noisy kingfisher is a low and far reaching peer-por-por repeated about every 5 seconds, as well cackling ke-ke-ke-ke-ke-ke. #kingfisher #wildlife #wildlifephotography #birdsofinstagram #birds #srilanka #srilankawildlife #natgeo #natgeowild #animalplanet #photography

Archaeology gives a sense of place. It grounds us within the landscape and every place is unique… – Stephen Dean . Location : Ritigala, Sri Lanka . Banda Pokuna [ the ' Made up pond’] . Ruins of the Banda Pokuna, a 4th Century BC reservoir built into the foothills of the Ritigala Ridge in north-central Sri Lanka. Pond called ' Banda Pokuna' [ or the ' Made up pond’] is said to be of a capacity to hold about 2 million gallons of water when in use at earlier. . . #visitsrilanka🇱🇰 #visitsrilanka #visit #travelcouples #traveldairies #travelblogger #srilankan #srilanka🇱🇰 #beautifulsrilanka #ceylon #roamceylon #traveltag #travelgram #letstravel #googlelocalguides #travelpassion #igdaily #igtravel #photos #lka #happytravellers #revisitsrilanka #travelgirl #sosrilanka #destinationsrilanka #instagood #instagram #instadaily #travelgoals #couplegoals

ТОП 10 Шри-Ланки Это был мой четвёртый раз и я вернусь ещё. ✔️Сигирия – самое впечатляющее место, в которое я готова вернуться. Это центр острова, где высокая скала когда-то была крепостью царя Кассапа. Советую попасть сюда на закате и идти уже последними около 5 -5:30 вечера. Людей будет меньше, не так жарко, и вы вы сможете увидеть красивый закат. Подъем и спуск занимает около часа. Остановиться: •Aliya Resort and Spa ✔️Пик Адама – для того, чтобы попасть на гору нужно будет встать ночью и дождаться рассвета там. Самые впечатляющие виды будут здесь. И оно того стоит. Либо подняться на малый Пик Адама. ✔️Проехаться на поездке из Канди в Нувара-Элию и увидеть самые красивые чайные плантации Шри-Ланки. В одну сторону около 5 часов, смотря с какой станции вы туда отправитесь. В любом случае лучше остаться на ночь. ✔️Попасть на плантации и посмотреть процесс изготовления чая. Это действительно интересно. Самые знаменитые плантации: •Mackwoods •Glenloch •Pedro Estate •Blue Field Остановиться: •Ceylon Tea Trails ✔️Пляж Хиккадува и кормление черепах. Приходите рано утром с 7 до 10, в дни, когда нет сильных волн. Берите с собой морскую капусту и черепахи радостно будут с вами общаться. ✔️Самый популярный пляж острова – Бентота, здесь много кафе и школ сёрфинга. Из красивых пляжей, которые стоит посетить: •Мерисса •Нилавели и рядом с ним маленький остров-заповедник Пиджеон, до него нужно плыть на катере. •Тангалле ✔️Национальные парки, где вы сможете посмотреть на животных в естественной среде обитания: •Яла •Миннерия •Удавалаве •Kaudulla (слоны) ✔️Побывать в Элле и пожить с видом на живописные горы. Остановиться: •New Cabin Ella (потрясающий вид на железную дорогу) ✔️Водопады. На Шри-Ланке их достаточно. Если вы любите водопады, то несколько красивых для вас: •Сент-Клер •Девон-Фоллс •Бейкерс-Фоллс •Дунхинда- Фоллс •Равана-Фоллс ✔️Из местной ланкийской кухни попробовать: •Маллум/маллунг- салат из мелко-нарезанных зелёных листьев с готуколой, мякотью кокоса, чили, соком лайма. •Роти- здесь эти лепешки делают из мякоти кокоса, муки, воды и соли •Жареные семена джекфрута •Фреш из деревянного яблока(лимонии)- питательный, полезный и ни на что не похожий #top10byalisa

🌶Овощи в Шри-Ланке.🌽 . Ставим ❤ лайк и читаем. . Такого многообразия форм и размеров я не встречала, кажется, ни в одной стране мира. Бывает, у меня спрашивают, а у Вас есть овощи или только фрукты растут ?😜 Ага, есть не только обычные помидоры, огурцы и картошка, а еще много – много, нет ооочень много всего интересного. Листайте галерею и смотрите. Знаете что это там такое на фото?😃😏 Или лучше спросить ЧТО вы знаете из того, что есть на фото? Вот, например, Фото 2. Кареле (горькая тыква). Манджу называет это Каравила 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ На англ. языке – Bittergourd. Этот овощ получил распространение во всех тропических азиатских странах, но больше всего его любят в Индии и Шри-Ланке. Это очень полезный овощ богатый витаминами и железом. Относится к аюрведическим овощам. Горечь можно убрать, если правильно приготовить Карелу, предварительно замочив в соленой воде. Растет Карела как огурец на лиане, относится к семейству тыквенных. Стоимость в Шри-Ланке за 500 гр. Около 100 рупий (30 руб). . Хотите узнать еще про какие-то овощи на фотках? . . Пишите любой смайлик в комментариях и если тема будет интересна, я расскажу Вам про них еще 😋😀

EEN MOMENT VAN BEWUSTWORDING ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ De afgelopen weken zijn voorbij gevlogen. Ik besloot dat ik in 2019 mijn focus qua werk wilde verleggen: van lessen in studio’s wilde ik meer focussen op lessen binnen bedrijven. Ik wilde minder voor anderen werken en meer voor mezelf. Van kleinere groepen meer naar grotere groepen. Van offline meer naar online. Vanaf het moment dat ik daarvoor ging, kwam ik in een flow terecht waarin alles heel snel ging. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ De afgelopen maanden heb ik veel cursussen en workshops gegeven binnen het bedrijfsleven. Ik ben in meerdere tijdschriften verschenen en werkte ondertussen hard aan het opzetten van een podcastshow. Hoe meer er van de grond kwam, hoe meer nieuwe ideeën ontstonden. Al snel ging ik helemaal op in de flow die ontstond en trapte ik in mijn oude valkuil: ik vergat om te genieten en was alleen maar bezig met verbeteren en verder groeien. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @instanietje stuurde mij vorige week een ontzettend leuk en lief berichtje waarmee ze me weer terugbracht in het ‘nu’. Anita heb ik een tijd geleden geïnterviewd en haar verhaal raakte me diep. Anita heeft een groot hart en zet zich in voor minder bedeelde doelgroepen. Ze hielp me herinneren aan alle mooie dingen die ik al heb bereikt en gaf me de reminder om daarvan te genieten. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ En dat blijkt toch best lastig te zijn. Niet omdat ik niet trots ben, want dat ben ik wel. Het is vooral lastig om weer de rust en de ruimte te nemen om uit het hele proces te stappen, er van een afstandje naar te kijken en stil te staan bij het gevoel van dankbaarheid. Even stoppen met doen en bewust ervaren. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Deze week is weer helemaal vol gepland met mooie dingen, maar toch ga ik ook weer bewust tijd maken om te genieten, mijn zegeningen te tellen en stil te staan bij alles wat er ‘is’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #droomleven #bewustleven #bezinning #leefjedroom #wensen #verlangens #manifesteren #geluk #mooileven #everythingisom #bewustwording #bewustzijn #ambitieuzemeisjes #ambitie #business #businessbabesnl #ondernemen #ondernemendevrouwen #ondernemer

🇱🇰 SRI LANKA El inolvidable viaje en tren de Kandy a Ella. Debo confesar que viajar a Sri Lanka no estaba en mis planes, pues estaba viajando el oeste de Asía sin planificar mucho, solo dejándome guiar por lo que iba encontrando en mi camino y por aquellos que iban y venían entre “home stays” y hostales . Pero gracias a una pareja encantadora de Españoles que conocí en Maldivas, y quienes venían de Sri Lanka, pude conocer fascinantes historias que me emocionaron tanto que empece a preguntar a todos quienes iban en mi scubaspa (pronto historias de maldivas) si ya habían ido, y para mi sorpresa muchos habian recorrido gran parte de ese país, entonces fui al bar, pedi un vino tinto y compré esa misma noche mi tiquete directo a Colon (Capital de Sri Lanka). No tuve mucho tiempo para planear, aunque la verdad me gusta mas así, pero ya llevaba escrito un pequeño listado de las ciudades que quería visitar. Mis nuevos amigos me contaron que recorrieron Sri Lanka contratado un carro privado con chofer como muchos turistas hacen, pues es “difícil” el transporte público, las distancias son eternas y hay constantes scams, pero yo soy más de aventurar. Así que después de pasar de Colon a Kandy en bus público, no podía esperar más por entrar a este tan nombrado y ruidoso tren azul que me llevaría a el hermoso pueblito de Ella. Este tren tiene 3 clases pero la segunda fue un hit. Tuve mi ventana abierta, tomé fotos y podía estar atenta cuando alguien desocupara alguna puerta del tren. Esta puerta es extremadamente solicitada ya que las mejores fotos y el disfrute de sentirte lebitando afuera, mientras la brisa te despeina esta allí. En estas 7 horas de viaje estuve realmente atónita al contemplar las interminables plantaciones de té verde y el sonido de este mágico y viejo tren que te deja sentir el roce de la vegetación en tus piernas. Una de las maravillas de viajar sola es que puedes hundirte en tus pensamientos, mientras sonríes y descubres con nuevos ojos esas riquezas naturales que jamás te habías permitido contemplar en detalle.
